Christine Quinn appeared on “Good Day New York” this morning to talk about the City Council’s new effort to look into the city’s restaurant grading system, and a fairly amusing moment happened at the end when hosts Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto asked her about her future political plans.
Scotto: Do we want to ask Christine Quinn about running for mayor?
Quinn: I hear you are for Marty.
Kelly: She is for Marty. She is more of a Marty cheerleader than Marty.
Scotto: I am an independent thinker here. And I am not endorsing anybody on “Good Day New York.” But there is a lot of talk about you running for mayor.
Quinn: And it is very flattering and very gratifying.
Kelly: Very flattering! You make it sound like…Wait a second. You’ve raised a lot of money.
Quinn: I have raised a lot. A girl needs to be prepared.
Kelly: And it’s for a mayoral campaign, right?
Quinn: It is for a citywide potential run. And at some point we will be prepared to talk about that. But here today we are talking about restaurant grading
Kelly: No, we are done with that. We will see what happens next. You are running for mayor.
Quinn: I have not declared that yet. It is certainly something I am considering.
Scotto: All right. Is that enough for you now? I am just happy that she is here and is doing a great job for the City of New York.
Kelly: Apparently you’ve got a vote.
Quinn: I’ll take two.
Kelly: Ahh. The jury’s out. I’ve got to see the other candidates and take a good look at them.
Mr. Kelly of course is the son of police chief Ray Kelly, a rumored but apparently not candidate for may0r.
The fun starts at about the 5:15 mark.
